Families are Forever!

Our lives are crazy busy right now. Scott is going in for surgery on his wrist tomorrow. I created the annoucement above to send out for Maggies blessing, but I am just not getting things done like I had hoped. I guess people will have to settle for an e-vite. I just wanted to post this here so if I missed sending you one for some reason, you will know whats happening. Thanks for all of your love and support.

It's Offical!

Shout Hooray! Today our family went to court to finalize our adoption! YAY!! I must say that I was quite nervous going today. I dont know why.... (for those of you who know me, you know that I stress out for no reason)

Anyway, we met our attorney and case worker early this morning to go over all the paperwork. When court started we were sworn in and our lawyer took over. It was all pretty simple and easy, no need to worry at all. After reviewing all of the documentation the judge gave his approval to complete the adoption. He used the words "as if she had been born to you!" There is no difference!! How awesome is that. Maggie is officially ours.

I am so grateful for this beautiful baby girl. She is a miracle to our family. Thank you to her birthmother and the selfless sacrifice she made on Maggies behalf.

Poor dog

Wow, it's been a while since I posted. Sorry! Who knows where the time has gone. July was crazy busy.
Maggie is growing so much and she is changing everyday! She is becoming more mobile. She hasn't learned the coordination of crawling yet but that hasnt stopped her from using her arms and legs to pull and propel her forward. Her main motivation for moving....... The dog!!! Oh how she loves Chloe! I am not sure what is so interesting about the Dog, but Maggie cannot get enough of her. The two of them play a little game of "cat and mouse". The dog will lay on the floor on one side of the room. Maggie will scoot over to her and just as Maggie gets within reach the dog will get up and move to the other side of the room and the game starts all over again. The dog has to keep her guard up at all times because if she doesnt Maggie sneaks up on her and scares her.
I have to say I am grateful that we have a dog that is so good natured. She doesnt get upset or mad at Maggie. She doesnt nip at her or anything, which is so nice!!
The other day I think the dog had enough. They had been playing their usual game for a while when all of the sudden I heard the dog let out a little bark. I looked over and she was looking directly at Maggie. Maggie just laughed and the dog barked at her again. Then she just snooted and ran downstairs. I didnt see the dog again for a few hours. I think the dog had had enough and she barked at Maggie as if to say "Leave me alone!" When Maggie neglected her pleas the dog just gave up and went downstairs to santuary!

Chloe has no idea what is in store for her as Maggie gets older. She really doesnt have a chance..... Poor Dog :)
